In Mario Kart Wii, certain items have restrictions for when or under what condition they may be gotten. By this, I do not mean the items based on placement system.

Some Items can be pulled only after a certain time limit. For example, the Shock can be used only once in 30 seconds. I know there are other items that have similar use restrictions, but what are these items, and what restriction do they have?

I'm not sure about other items with time restrictions. But I do know that some items are restricted to only one existing in a race at a time.

For example, only 1 blue shell can exist at any one time.
So if someone gets a blue shell from an item box, they could hold onto it the whole race, and no one would ever get a blue shell.

I believe Bullet Bill follows this rule too.
There's a good chance that there's a "cooldown" for bloopers/POW blocks too, as you never really see two of them at the same time, and they also hit multiple players at once.
